Party efficiency is considered as one of the important elements of political development. One of the aspects of party efficiency is related to the type of party laws. We don’t have any research in iran in this scope. Kenneth Janda,one of the theorists in this area, has mentioned 5-law of party models in his theory each of which put particular negative and affirmative conditions ahead of parties. In addition to considering the type and quality of party laws as the reasons of party lack of institutionalization and efficiency after Islamic revolution, the current research, which is seeking to investigate the party efficiency status in the Islamic Republic of Iran, believes thatthe flexible and progressive legal frameworksare among the main reasons of the evolution and dynamics of political parties and organizations. Therefore, the research question is: Do the current laws of parties have the capacity of party empowerment and efficiency? The research hypothesis indicates that based on the Janda's theory, the basis of codificationof the current law of parties is of license-oriented type, imposing some limitations to the parties' activities and avoid their creativity and efficiency. This research was conducted by relying on descriptive-analytical method and reading the content of party laws of 1982 and 2017 in Iran.
